So after all my talk about a flat-shoe-centric life, here I am in heels. I wore this on a day when I had a TV appearance and spent the rest of my time working from home. And these Clarks heels are one of the few pairs I can still rely on to keep my feet happy, at least for short runs. They made the cut from my merciless shoe purge.

With the style shift, I expected my sartorial inspiration to be drawn from edgy, rocker-ish sources. Instead, I find myself ogling the clothing and styling at Eileen Fisher (hence these completely amazing pants) and Peruvian Connection. Could not have predicted THAT, but both are showing lots of neutrals, interesting layers, and some really artful pieces for fall and winter. Just goes to show that inspiration is everywhere.

And yes, that is basically a tweed sweatshirt. Mined from the vast Twice selection. I love it a whole bunch.

My inner Animal Nerd just KNOWS that this print isn’t standard-issue leopard. It’s a little more ocelot-y than anything else, but might be some mystical big cat hybrid dreamed up in the J.Crew labs. I loved pairing it with these snake print shoes for a subtly jungle-y outfit. And, likely one of the last bare legs ensembles I’ll be donning for a long, long time …

Husband Mike is a big fan of plaid pants for me. I’ve never asked him why, or if I have I can’t remember his reply. But in any case, I’m a plaid fan myself and since I loved the slightly slouchy, cropped fit on this CAbi pair, I nabbed ‘em without hesitation. Their cuffed state and cropped length make them perfect for pairing with booties and heels, though I’m wondering if they’ll transition well into freezing temps and snow.

How would you style these pants for winter? Not sure they’ll tuck into tall boots, but perhaps a fitted boot will tuck under the pant leg …
